Hello everyone. In a few hours it will be Thanksgiving Day here in the USA. In addition to the giving of thanks, it’s associated with good food, football games, and shopping. I’m grateful for a lot, but I haven’t been able to write because of my “stuff.” One thing that always makes me feel better is doing something to lift up others. Thinking about that, I suddenly decided to do a mini-book fair.
There are endless wonderful indie books. Immediately I saw that I had to set a limit for my post. A theme was in order, but what? Abruptly, Robbie Cheadle’s story “The Christmas Bird” reminded me that I’ve included birds in a few of my own books. That became my fair theme, Birds of a Feather. This mini-book fair features stories that include birds… and a few that have wings, but not necessarily birds. But there are no turkeys among them!
Naturally, I couldn’t resist making promotional images for them.
Below, I’ve provided universal purchase links for the books. Most are available in a variety of formats — some even have audio books. You can also get all the information about the books at their links. Ready? Here goes.
The Birds of a Feather Book Fair
I’m starting with my Twilight Zone-ish novel, set in the 1950s, with lots of music. It features Jinx, a far from ordinary magpie.

S.R. (Sarah) Mallery included a cockatoo who is bound to make you cackle in her witchy series. So far there are two books. You’ll have to ask Sarah if there will be more.

My first “three things” style pantser blog series (which became books) was about Pip, an unflappable flapper. In the second book, she took in a parrot that stole the show. Cracker had belonged to a very, very bad man and she had the vocabulary to prove it. Whenever the macaw cried “Who’s your daddy?” Granny Phanny would nearly faint at the bad language. (You don’t have to read the first book to enjoy the second, or the third.)

Of course, there’s the hoopoe bird that gave me the idea for this fair. By Robbie Cheadle, it’s a semi-autobiographical micro-read for all ages.

An unplanned character quickly became a reader favorite in my “pantser” fantasy about misfit faeries. Tiny though he was, Bob the Hummingbird had the heart of a lion.

Not Exactly Birds, but Wings
Who says birds of a feather have to actually be birds? I couldn’t resist including these, since they at least had wings or were birdlike.
And what wings! Olga Núñez Miret created a young adult trilogy with teenagers and angels. Sorry, but I absolutely have to say that it’s divine.

I won’t spoil anything by saying how birds come into this marvelous story by D. L. Finn. It’s not your ordinary beach read.

I hope you’ll do some shopping now. After all, books are a calorie-free treat! Friendly comments are welcome. Hugs on the wing.
